Here’s what we know.

The NHL Commissioner has resigned following a meeting of the National Hockey League Players’ Association in Chicago.

Bettman’s resignation was announced on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

“Commissioner Bettman is a great leader who has served our league with distinction, respect and distinction,” NHL Commissioner Dale Tallon said in a statement.

“He has been a friend and colleague to me for more than 30 years and has done so with integrity, professionalism and leadership.

I wish him the best as he leaves an important role in our game and an important chapter in our collective history.”

Former NHL general manager and current NHL vice president of hockey operations Dale Tallson has been suspended indefinitely.

The investigation into alleged sexual misconduct by players has reportedly taken a toll on the NHL.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that “a lot of people are saying the league has gone downhill and has lost its way.

It has to change.

The league has to have a real shakeup.”

8.

The New York Islanders, who have the worst record in the NHL, are facing the possibility of losing their third consecutive season and could lose a third of their salary cap space.

“We will be reviewing the process and looking at all of our options,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said Tuesday.

“This has been something we’ve had for a long time and something that we’ve taken a lot of pride in.”

9.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have suspended goalie Kris Letang for 10 games for his role in the incident.

10.

The Montreal Canadiens, the team with the worst-performing roster in the league, are set to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at Bell Centre on Thursday night.

“The Penguins organization will not tolerate this type of behavior in any way, shape or form,” said Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin in a release.

“I know the players and the organization are all very upset and angry about what happened on Thursday.

I have also reached out to the player himself to offer my full support.”

11.

Former Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price was fined $25,000 for his part in the alleged incident, which took place on March 9.

“It is a sad day for the game when a person with the greatest reputation for being a hockey player has been caught on tape saying inappropriate things,” Price’s agent Rob Manfred said in the statement.

12.

The Minnesota Wild are set for a 10-game suspension for forward Ryan Carter for violating team rules by not wearing a mask.

“As we understand it, there was a helmet violation on Ryan Carter, who was in the penalty box,” Wild coach Mike Yeo said Tuesday in a press conference.

“At this point, we don’t know the full extent of the violation.

But it appears to be the kind of violation that would not be tolerated in any other situation.”

13.

There have been no penalties handed down in the case, but the Wild will be held to a two-game playoff suspension for Carter’s behavior.

14.

Former Detroit Red Wings forward Danny DeKeyser is facing a five-game ban for his alleged role in an alleged sexual assault in November.

17.

The Toronto Maple Leaf Centre has issued a statement to The Canadian Press in response to the alleged incidents.

“To address the issues raised in the media regarding our players, we have made changes to our training program.

We will work closely with the League and the Players’ Players’ Associations to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our players and all of their teammates,” said a statement from Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment.
